Unfinished business as Trump to make historic third run for president in 2024

By Robert Romano Republicans appear poised to retake the House of Representatives by a very slim majority in the 2022 Congressional midterm elections. Having started the night out with 212 seats, the GOP needed only six seats to get to the needed 218 seats, and if they get there, it will be because of strong runs for governor by Republicans […]
